To complete the PhD study programme, Anne Skipper Bach presents her PhD dissertation, giving a public lecture followed by a defence on 16 June 2021 at 13:00.

The defence takes place virtually via Microsoft Teams.

Logging on is only possible from 12:45 to 13:15, and attendees are asked to mute their microphones to avoid any background noise.

We strive to make it possible for the audience to ask questions to the candidate. Questions must be sent to  Mona Toft Madsen, who heads the defence, via the "conversation" box appearing in the middle of the panel while attending.

Attendees do not have access to technical support during the defence.
